Dr. Wheeler continued.
"The more successful directors are
those who have burled their own dead.
Directors should not conduct funeral in
a manner which suggests that they are
thinking of the commercial side of the
"Little things, such as slamming cab
doors, making sharp remarks and whisk
ing nervously about suggest this. Such
persons always leave a discordant note
in the family which has lost a loved one."
Many Interesting: Devices.
The Auditorium was opened last night
that everybody could view the exhibits,
many of which are unusually interest
ing. The latest devices for caring for
the dead and innovations in burial and
embalming equipment are on display.
Among the most interesting thing In
the show is the Hainline catafalque, a
device for lowering caskets into graves.

the inventor, is in charge of the exhibit
and explains the workings of the device
As Hainline describes it, it cannot bn

a pleasure, but It relieves a great deal of
the .unpleasantness of that task.
What caused him to invent it, Hainline
says, was that he had been reminded
many times while making interments in
rural cemeteries that it was necessary to
re-sort to shovels, fence boards or rails
on which to place the casket across the

"Kid" Wedffe Again.
GENOA, Neb., June 8. To ths Editor
of The Bee: In defence of our litis city
and the citirens thereof, we desire space
in reply to an article in Saturday's Bee
over the signature of F. R Wedge, bet
ter known as "Kid Wedge." For the
laet year our village has been stirred up
over the antics of this man. He has not
only assaulted the person, but also the
characters of our citizens on both the
street and from the pulpit and near the
hour of midnight on the 9th day of last
March he was discovered on the streets
with an axe, avowing his intention of
"getting" a couple of our citizens. Fol
lowing he remained in seclusion for a
few days, but pulled out on March 14
during a blizzard presumably to escape
arrest, and the whole town breathed
easier hoping it had seen the last of a
During this time the state press con
tained many articles inspired by this
man, which, like the one referred to
above, were almost entirely devoid of
truth. He states that after his arrest
the citizens gathered to the number of
several hundred and held an indignation
meeting and, sent several loads of "busi
ness men" to Fullerton to ball him out.
No indignation meeting was held and no
business man, or even a member of the
church went on his bond. And on the
other hand the business men are almost
unanimous in their opposition to the man
and his methods.
The records of the court show that no
papers were ever served on him com
pelling him to go to Omaha when his
wife was sick or at any other time, and
his assault upon Lawyer Rose was un
provoked, by that, or by anything that
happened at the time of the assault ac
cording to the undisputed evidence of a
large number of witnesses at his trial on
Thursday' last, at which time he was
bound over to district court for "Assault
with intent to do great bodily injury," a
penitentiary offence, the lawyer having
suffered two broken ribs.
He was arrested on June 1 as a fugitive
from justice, having failed to appear at
a former hearing, his ball being declared
forfeited, and when the news was re
ceived that he expected to be in Genoa
on that date preparations were made to
take hJm in.
And now as a climax, the day before
the hearing before the county Judge last
w'eek, the attorney received a white cap
letter, bearing the skull and cross bones
and a warning that unless he dropped the
case against Wedge dire things would be
meted out to him. The letter was placed
in evidence at the trial and six bank
officials testified that the letter was writ
ten by the same person who wrote a
business' communication to the church
and signed by Wedge.
And now &e ask the publication of this
that the people of Genoa may be placed
In the right light. Our citizens are not
brigands, character wreckers or black
banders, and Wedge has brought upon
himself all the trouble he has had while
here, and the white cap letter will be
turned over to handwriting experts, and
if they sustain the evidence of the bank
ers he will be prosecuted upon the charge
of writing the same. He is now under
$600 bonds to keep the peace and $700 to
appear at the trial.

TORK. Neb., June 8 To the Editor
of The Bee: Will you. through your col
umns, please tell your many readers
what is meant by this catch-penny
phrase of "Square Deal?"
That is the big cry now, by men of
high hopes and. low. methods to gain
their ends and satisfy an ambition. I
thought it meant a perfect cube, every
side as equal face, but I seem to be out
of date; as the programs now read, It
should be bulged out like Milwaukee on
one side, and hollow on the other side.
One holds the rule of the people so sa
cred as to worship it, until he thoug.it
the state vote might go to some one else,
and then he declares he will not abide by
It. Great stuff that, when It comes our
way It is the people, but If the people
go for some one else, It is the "Bosses,"
The Machine." The Ring," "The Inter
ests," etc., etc., etc. Yet the whole
bunch has agreed on one line of action,
and that' is; that if the truth was told
there would be no use for any of them
to run, so in a desperate case they resort
to desperate measures ; to win. . That is
why we find a half a score of office
seekers peddling false, statements of the
promises of this administration, and of
its act as being betrayal of the people;
both of which is mis-stated. The people
are very bitter against the administra
tinn fnr mantr cross wrnnfffl that wiv
not committed. Yet they will not hear the
truth because these fellows with an axe to
grind, presumed on the faith the people
had In them or on a guess that people
did not have the facts In hand. But I
have the platform, the speech of accept
ance, the guide-posts for every party
every year (but this), I also hive the last
tariff bill, as well as the four that pre
ceded it. ' And this array of evidence Is
the last word In this dispute; (as they are
the facts in the-easel any statements by
anybody to the contrary would not with
standing. I would be glad to hear from
the one that can refute this. For every
duty raised by the new law It lowered
nearly three, and with but slight ex
ceptions the reductions were on the main
stays of life and the raises were on its
frills, but many of the most common
thfrrgs were not changed at all, among
which are the whole list of live stock
. . . . , t
products And then such as hams, bacon,
lard and fresh meats, sugar and many
others were reduced of things we eat.
And of things we' use we find coal lum
ber, farm implements, etc., etc., reduced.
Then that terrible Schedule "K", of
which we hear so much, it did not raise
the duty on woo! or common cloth. It
did not raise the duty on cotton or silk
or on women's or children's ready-made
clothing, so we hear It did; but we ad
mit that It raised the duty on some of
the fine weaver of cloth and on some of
the fine wares made from them, and
some of the latter were raised more than
was meat, and the president said so, but
this is not the way they are telling It
now. Yet these are the facts.
Then Mr. Bryan says the steel trust
owns the party. Where does he get his
proof?- The new bill made many reduc
tions on steel, and In many places it Is
lower than the rate in the noted law
known as the Wilson-Gorman-Bryan
Free Trade bill.
So, I am for the "Square Deal;" that
Is equal on all sides, and that dares to
tell the truth. For I have no more use
lor the inaa or aieu or party, that se-
No July Clearing ever was distinguished by more or greater bargains this is a momentous event, and unrivaled.

OMAHA. Neb., June 10. 1912,-To the
Editor of The Bee: I notice in the news
columns of a recent number of your
valuable paper, a statement that numer
ous communications had been received
by our worthy police commissioner, John
J. Ryder, suggesting that he tane u
upon himself to prevent automobiles and
horse propelled vehicles from passing
through crowds alighting from and board
ing street cars on crossings. We have a
state law compelling automobiles to come
to a full stop while street cars are being
unloaded and loaded, and it occurs to
me If the parties who have complained
to our police commissioner are anxious
to stop a growing nuisance which the
state law enacted designed to obliter
ate, they should file a complaint against
all vlolaters of the law In some court of
competent jurisdiction and show an In
dividual disposition to stand for law en
forcement. Those who are too cowardly
to open their mouth at the proper place,
certainly deserve no attention from our
newly elected police commissioner, who
has his hands full of real business, and
so far has made a creditable record.
Personally I believe In the strict en
forcement of all state and municipal laws
but I hope I am not so unreasonable as
to expect John' J. Ryder to do every
man's bidding on- the Jump. It Is the duty
of every good citizen to help make our
commission form of government a suc
cess, and It la hoped the meddlesome
knocker, will subside, at least for the time
belng. and give the new administration a
reasonable chance to make good..

SAGE TEA WILL
There la nothing new about the Ida, of
using Gage for restoring the etUcT of tha
hair. Our grandmothers kept their hain
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
a simple "Sage Tea." Whenever their
hair fell ou or took on a dull, faded op
streaked appearance they made a brew of.
Sage leaves, and applied it to their hair
with wonderfully beneficial effect.
Nowadays we don't have to resort to tha
old-time tiresome method of gathering
the herbs and making the tea. This la
done by skillful chemists better than wa
could do It ourselves; and all we have to
do Is to call for the ready-made product.
